HTC Droid DNA Gets Android 4.4.2 and Sense 5.5
You may remember that just recently the HTC Droid DNA gained the ability to dual multiple ROMs thanks to an unofficial MultiROM port. So for the folks who’ve been wondering how this may be of benefit, there’s now a Sense 5.5-laced build of Android 4.4.2 that’s been ported over from the HTC One to the Droid DNA that may serve as a fine starting point.
Not possible without the efforts of XDA Recognized Developers sbryan12144 and Zarboz as well as newtoroot, joelz9614, and Hawknest; the Android 4.4.2 and Sense 5.5 ports are currently stable and running on the Linux 3.4.18 kernel. As these have been ported from the HTC One, one will expect all the software features from the One to be present in this port. The ROM does not come pre-rooted, but this shouldn’t be a problem because you can simply root it after installation. The port offers both CDMA and GSM device support, and there are three downloads provided: an odexed build, a deodexed build, and a patch to get CDMA working.
Droid DNA users interested in getting a previes of the Android 4.4.2 and Sense 5.5 experience should head over to the original thread for more information. It’s better than waiting.
